Best Caster-Class Servants in Fate/Grand Order

The Top Ten

1 Merlin Merlin

Well, this list isn't limited to just NA-available Servants, so I might as well add Merlin to the list. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I feel like I've robbed Merlin of his much-deserved top spot in the top 3 along with Waver and Medea. So I'm going to make it up to him by placing him higher on this list and explaining why he's such a grandly exceptional Caster. Basically, he's Waver Turned Up To Eleven when it comes to being the support for your party. His first skill adds 20% NP charge and a 20% increase in Attack for your team, his second skill grants invincibility to your entire party along with increasing your party's star generation rates and decreasing your enemies' chances of delivering critical attacks with a moderate cooldown, and his third skill gives your team 50% Buster up, 3000 Max HP increase and a 100% Critical Damage bonus for three turns. In addition, one of his passive skills include being able to generate 5% NP per turn and at NP1 for Garden of Avalon, he provides 1000 healing, 5% NP charge and 5 critical stars to the party per turn for five turns. With all the statistics of what is actually a ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

2 Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II) Zhuge Liang (Lord El-Melloi II)

Need all the buffs your team can get and all the debuffs your enemies can get? Look no further than this 5-star Caster-class Servant, aka Waver Velvet. And since his NP gain is pretty efficient in terms of Skills (not only for himself, but the entire team), you can rack up enough charged-up Noble Phantasm attacks for the final battle of a quest. Especially his OP debuffing Noble Phantasm Formation of No Return. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

3 Medea Medea

Only three words can describe her Noble Phantasm Rule Breaker: SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! She may not deal the most damage when it comes to a Caster-class Servant, but if you expertly use her NP gain to your advantage, you can remove enemy buffs without a hitch in nigh-rapid succession! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

4 Tamamo no Mae Tamamo no Mae

MIKON! So since Tamamo no Mae (or Casko, as Nero refers to her as) is coming out next week for the US Halloween campaign, let's take a good luck at what makes her a fearsome Servant (and waifu). Naturally, as a Caster, her card set is Arts-based, so not only is it easy to build up NP charge, but she's especially vital if you use an Arts-based party of Servants (ex. Tamamo no Mae, Zhuge Liang, and Vlad III). Her skill set is not too bad, as she can drain an enemy's NP gauge by 1 bar, increase her own defense for 3 turns and also increase her defense by 30% for 1 turn only, and increase 1 ally's Arts card performance for 3 turns (and heal ally's HP post-interlude). Now probably what makes her stand out the most is her Noble Phantasm. Using her Noble Phantasm, she can help refill all allies' HP gauges AND reduce all allies' skill cooldowns by 1 turn. It may not sound like much, but considering it's easy to spam her Noble Phantasm, you can make pretty good use of using skills on a more ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Contenders

11 Hans Christian Andersen Hans Christian Andersen
12 Gilles de Rais Gilles de Rais

You know, I think I've been too generous with this Servant's spot on the list. His skills barely serve any vital use to him as a Caster and he can't compete with other well-regarded low-rarity Casters like Medea and Hans Christian Andersen. Sorry, Gilles, but I got to take you down a notch. A LONG notch, to be exact. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
